Patron wanted


Princes Margaret's death leaves a vacancy in, among other places, the Architects' Benevolent Society. One of the princess's last public engagements was to attend the 150th anniversary celebrations of the society in November 2000 at the Banqueting House. Possible candidates would include the Duke of Gloucester (an architect already involved with the ABS) or perhaps Viscount Linley, the furniture designer. For some reason Prince Charles has not been mentioned.
